Afternoon Break...and Wes Clark...

obama enroute to independence, missouri


the america we love, speech in independence, missouri


General Wesley Clark goes after John McCain on his national security and military executive experience.

Clark has been making this statement for a while now, in fact on morning joe a couple of weeks ago.

Why it is suddenly a 'big thing' is this....the Main Stream Media.

I have written before that the MSM will turn on Obama and this is part of the turning. They need something to yap about, because after the Unity Rally, what else is left? Bill Clinton? Yes, they have been harping on that and it is true by Carville, McAuliffe and Rendell that his is having a hard time dealing with his wife's loss and does blame Obama for how the campaign turned against him, mainly the African-American Community, by calling him a racist.

Bill Clinton is not a racist, he is a politician who stuck his nose in the dog whistle tactics and got caught. I, personally feel that Geraldine Ferraro and some of the other surrogates were worse than Bill Clinton, but because of Clinton being a former president, his comments got the bully pulpit. Simple as that. Bill Clinton should not have stepped in the doo-doo, but he did and he has to take the knocks that goes with it.

But, Wes Clark said nothing new here. In fact, it is true.

I honor John McCain's service to this country; I served this country, as my brother did. I understand John McCain is a war hero, he has been through much, but that does not equate to being the best candidate for the job. Simply put, he is not. First thing is looking at McCain's actual record.

He has changed his position on practically everything, and I mean everything. This notion that democratic women will fall in line with McCain is a fairytale in its own. He happens to be a war hero, who has been in Washington, D.C. to long, does not come across well to many, but will say anything to be the next president.

McCain has as much executive experience on national security, as Barack Obama. Which equals, none.

The last thing we need is to elect a 72 year old man because of his war record. The way he has voted and stood by George W. Bush, just won't do. Not in 2008. McCain has been entrenched in Washington, D.C. for over 25 years, which is no change to me; in fact it is offering more of the same.

Finally, Wes Clark is auditioning for the VP slot, no mistake about it and he should.

Obama denounces Clark's statments.

So, much for that VP slot.

And, McCain launches "Truth Squad"...

Oh, Obama's "Fight the Smears" has been updated....

GOP Sharpens Attacks on Obama

Sen. John McCain's allies have seized on a new and aggressive line of attack against Sen. Barack Obama, casting the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee as an opportunistic and self-obsessed politician who will do and say anything to get elected.

McCain typically leaves the sharpened criticism to others, in the hope of being able to claim the high ground of conducting a "respectful" campaign. But the abrupt shift in tone among his paid staff members, volunteer surrogates and other Republican staples of the cable news circuit is unmistakable, and it resembles the unified message the GOP used to paint the 2004 Democratic candidate, Sen. John F. Kerry, as a flip-flopper.

It also reflects a growing belief among McCain's strategists that the campaign for the White House will be won or lost based on voters' view of Obama's character. In a strategy memo released Thursday, McCain's top political adviser accused Obama of "self-serving partisanship." continue

Again, it will be hard for the Republicans to make any gains this cycle. This party has stepped in line behind George W. Bush and see where the country is at.

This campaign is about painting Barack ineffective, slimy, regular joe-blow politician, and the other "racial" stuff along with it.

In other words, GOP "Ain't Ready to Play or Be Nice."


Well, More Lieberman

Lieberman predicts another attack early in the next presidency.

Now, Lieberman using the Clinton line.

LIEBERMAN: We need a president who's ready to be Commander-in-Chief on day one. Senator McCain is - incidentally, Senator Clinton said that over and over again and she was right. She was ready to be president on day one. Why? Because our enemies will test the new president early. Remember that the truck bombing at the World Trade Center happened in the first year of the Clinton administration. 9/11 happened in the first year of the Bush administration. John McCain is ready to take the reins on January 20, 2009. He doesn't need any training.

Can we say, primary playbook anyone?
